Ronda Rousey To Defend Bantamweight Title Against Sara McMann
Ronda Rousey, the reigning bantamweight champion, will look to defend her title against Sara McMann at UFC 170 in Las Vegas on Friday.
As the odds currently stand Rousey is a -450 favorite, while a McMann win stands at +350, reported Sporting News. Throughout their respective tenures in the UFC, both women have undefeated records. Rousey has won eight matches and McMann was the victor in seven bouts.
Though Rousey was able to finish Miesha Tate in her last fight, the win didn’t come as easily as it had against other opponents. It took her until the third round to take her out with her signature arm bar. McMann, an Olympic silver medalist in wrestling, could pose an even bigger threat.
Tate had her best chance to upset Rousey when she kept her standing. It’s believed that if McMann can keep Rousey on her feet, she’ll have a shot at taking the title from her. Oddsmakers, with respect to Rousey’s record have made her the favorite, but a far lesser favorite than she was against Tate.
